Electronic Texts by Cooper in English (I-Novels; II-Non-Fiction, Articles, Short Stories; III-Correspondence)

General. One of the most useful general links to Cooper materials is Internet Archives with literally hundreds of citations to texts of books by and about Cooper. It does contain some duplication, and it is sometimes hard to identify specific editions etc., from the link page. But once found, each text can accessed in a variety of searchable formats, including the fairly new "Flip Book" which is a searchable facsimile format that looks exactly like a real book.

Google Books: Another rapidly growing source of facsimile copies of earlier Cooper texts is Google Books. This particular links include only out-of-copyright editions (currently 83) of books by James Fenimore Cooper which are available at Google in "full view."

I - Novels (in chronological order) [Note: We do not necessarily list all on-line texts of a particular novel, as the number keeps growing.].

II - Non-Fiction, Articles, Short Stories (in chronological order)

III - Correspondence.

Electronic Texts in French

The French National Library website Gallica has placed some 46 Cooper novels and other works, in French translation, on-line. They can be accessed at the Gallica website by: (1) click on "Recherche"; (2) enter "Fenimore" or "Fenimore Cooper" in the box marked "Auteur"; click on "Rechercher".
The volumes include a complete 30 volume set of Cooper's novels as published by Fume, C. Gosselin; and then by Fume, Pagnerre, et Perrotin, between 1839 and 1854 (look for Oeuvres), some 15 other novel translations, and some non-fiction including Ned Myers (La Vie d'un Matelot), Gleanings in Europe: France, and Gleanings in Europe: The Rhine

Student Assistance Sites

Whether "student note" sites are helpful or harmful to real study may well be debated; some sites are really trying to sell papers to would-be plagiarists. Nevertheless we have found a couple of sites dealing with The Last of the Mohicans, with canned biographies of Cooper, summaries (short and chapter-by-chapter) of the novel, and other information. We provide links for what they may be worth, and because we seek to be complete, but such links do not constitute recommendations in any sense. The James Fenimore Cooper Society is happy to assist students whenever it can, though we will not provide canned answers. Just send your e-mail questions to Ask Fenimore.

There is also an interesting collections of detailed plot summaries of Cooper novels, put on line by Antiques Digest!
